A STUDY OF SOCIAL MEDIA SILENCING OR PROVIDING VOICES TO THE MARGINALISED YOUTH IN INDIA

Jyoti Thakur.

Abstract
Youth in India is still a significant marginalised section of the society. To better understand
marginalisation, it alludes to ways in which specific person or a whole community is shovelled beyond the edges
of the general society. Many of these marginalised young sections in developing countries like India have
weakened or severed family ties, subjected to social stigmatisation and are not connected to institutions such as
schools, clubs and workplaces. Such “Socially marginalised” youth sections are prone to exploitation during all
the stages of their life cycle as well as are striped off of their fundamental human and legal rights. This paper
analyses the vulnerabilities that these marginalised youth sections are exposed to in relation to weakened social
and family relationships, discrimination due to social stigmas, facing incompetence’s at work place, proneness to
physical and sexual abuse, walking towards the fallacious path of drugs and how social media is acting as a
facilitating platform to give voice to these marginalised youth sections. This paper critically and empirically
examines both constructive and destructive capacity of social media in the lives of this section as well as the
future implications of this scenario.

Key words: Marginalisation, Social media, marginalised groups.
